Referring to the McCain-Palin coattailing of Obama’s “Change” theme, Senator Obama said this recently at a campaign rally:
“John McCain says he’s about change, too – except for economic policy, health care policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy and Karl Rove-style politics,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s not change. That’s just calling the same thing something different. You can put lipstick on a pig – it’s still a pig.”
Predictably, the McCain campaign jumped all over it, claiming it was a direct insult to Gov. Palin. Apparently, the expression, which predates most of our grandparents, referred to her because she mentioned lipstick last week in her speech.
How fucking desperate can you get? This is on the same level as Cindy McCain’s assertion that Palin has “foreign policy experience” because she lives next door to Russia.
Desperate, sad, pathetic.
